At the airport in Guam I was greeted by Fran Hezel, S.J. I wasn't expecting him to be in Guam but it was quite a pleasant surprise, especially since he is one of the leading experts on Micronesian history and cultures. He and Fr. Tom, another Jesuit living in Guam took me out to dinner and graciously allowed me to stay at their house for the night. Tonight is going to be an early night for me, since I have to be back at the airport around 7am to catch my flight to Pohnpei.
Although I have only been here for a couple of hours, I am excited to be back in Micronesia, since technically Guam is part of the region of Micronesia. I knew I was back in Micronesia when I walked out of the airport and it felt like I was in a sauna and my glasses instantly fogged over. This is going to be a wonderful experience! Next stop Pohnpei (with a short layover in Chuuk)!
Side note: Another wonderful thing about Micronesia is that you always know someone. I already ran into someone I know and I bet I'll run into at least one more person I know tomorrow at the airport in Guam or on the plane.
